How can we help you?
There's a lot to think about when deciding on the right orthodontic treatment for you and your family. You are making an investment and a lifelong commitment to a better smile, so you probably have a lot of questions.
Dr. Jesus Martinez wants you to be an active part of your treatment, and we welcome all your questions. We want you to be an active participant in your treatment and have all the information you need to stay motivated and committed to the process.
Here are some questions that we often hear from our patients. If you have some of your own, please don't hesitate to call us at (305) 552-0402 or use our convenient online contact form and we'll find the answer you need!
If you or your child are wearing traditional braces, we need to make appointments to see you every four weeks. Since braces work by gradually repositioning your teeth, they need to be adjusted and monitored periodically by Dr. Jesus Martinez to ensure progress.
Patients who are receiving treatment with clear aligners usually have appointments scheduled every 8 to 10 weeks.
Periodic follow-up appointments are necessary to ensure the success of your orthodontic treatment, and you need to show up for every appointment scheduled. Nobody wants to spend any longer than necessary in treatment. But if you are non-compliant and miss appointments, you risk extended treatment times that can result in additional expense and put your overall oral health at risk.
These appointments are also a good time to ask Dr. Martinez any questions you have as you progress through treatment. He is always more than happy to take time with you because he knows that patients who are informed and knowledgeable are likely to stay motivated.
If you are having orthodontic treatment, you owe it to yourself to commit to doing your part. This includes keeping appointments and following all Dr. Martinez instructions. He has been practicing dentistry for 27 years, so you can be confident that he has the expertise and experience necessary to provide treatment that will exceed your expectations.
Please call our Miami dental office to learn how orthodontics can improve your smile and your life.
At Martinez Orthodontics we understand that everyone has unique needs that will require a personalized approach to treatment. We are pleased to offer various treatments modalities that will help you achieve your goal of a straighter, more attractive smile.
For children and adolescents, we recommend traditional braces, either metal or tooth-colored brackets, to guide the dental movement properly.
Some patients present developmental problems of the jaws and so additional orthopedic appliances may be necessary for jaws-growth guidance.
For adult patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems, we offer removable clear aligners that can be taken out for eating and brushing and flossing. Complex cases may require traditional braces, special appliances, and surgical intervention.
Whatever your needs, you can be confident that Dr. Martinez will explain all your options and how they will improve the health and appearance of your smile. We know that there’s a lot to think about when you or your child are getting orthodontic treatment, but we will be with you every step of the way to offer guidance and support.
The best way to find out what is best for you is scheduling a free consultation with Dr. Jesus Martinez. We will help you choose the one that is best for your particular orthodontic concern.
The cost of orthodontic treatment is based on the severity of the problem to be corrected and the type of appliances needed. The length of treatment necessary to obtain the desired results is another factor. We encourage you to be compliant and follow through with scheduled appointments because we can achieve desired results faster and with less expense to you.
During your initial complimentary orthodontic consultation, we will present you with the treatment fees, so you know what to expect. We accept most HMO and PPO insurances, and if you have orthodontic coverage, we will be happy to verify benefits on your behalf.
We believe that everyone should have access to high-quality orthodontic treatment. If you don’t have orthodontic coverage, we have other options. For your convenience, we offer interest-free financing through our office and a third-party financing option with GreenSky that allows you to spread your payments over many months. We also accept all major credit cards and offer discounts for children with Medicaid.
If you think you or your child might need orthodontics, please call Martinez Orthodontics to arrange a free consultation. We don’t want anyone to go without the treatment because of financial concerns, so we will do our best to work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs.
